SOURCE: Water collecting in refrigerator and ice collecting in freezer

sounds like you have a clogged defrost drain tube. removing back panel of freezer will give you access to drain trough, melt away the ice with a hair dryer, youll find a drain hole under there somewhere,pouring boiling water down the drain will clear it pretty quickly( i use a steam machine purchased from the infomercials works awesome, after you clear it and all water drain down tube wrap a piece of solid copper wire around the heater( black heater right above the drain trough) and stick it in the whole maybe an inch or so. now every time the heater comes on to defrost it will prevent the hole from freezing over

You are not getting enough water in the machine. The inlet valve is probably plugged with sand or something of the sort. You will need to replace the inlet valve.

You need to unplug remove the contents of the freezer and then remove the rear panel on the back wall of the freezer. Once that has been removed you will see the evaporator and at base of evaporator you will then see a defrost drain. Melt any ice that may be blocking the drain and then use a turkey baster to force hot water through the drain to disloge any ice or gunk that may be blocking the drain further down the drain line that ends up at base of refrigerator in a condensate drain pan.

I am pretty sure you are having a defrost drain blockage problem. Most defrost every eight hours and over a period of time the drain line that comes down from freezer into a cup like object top middle and back of the fresh food section. If blocked by gunk or ice you will see trails of liquid leaking down the rear wall of fresh food compartment until it reaches the crisper drawers. This is not always the same with every model as you may see frozen ice flowing down the rear wall of freezers on side by sides. Here is an example Click here=> Whirlpool Leak Photo taken by TechnicianBrian He has been around a good bit and deserves credit for his contributions. Here is another way to make this look more simple in clip below. TechnicianBrian.com And in this photo are several parts listed in photo group #1 were it is most likely running down the wall=> Magic Chef CTB1921AR fresh food section. If you still have questions please ask and rate me if I was able to explain this well enough. Every refrigerator is made different so these are examples only. The key is to find if ice or just gunk has blocked you defrost drain. Unplug and then remove the rear panel in back of freezer. We need to see if the water is overflowing the condensate drain tray or if the blockage is in the turn the drain leads down back of your refrigerator. Much more on this page=> Leaking Refrigerators! If you run into any problems along the way of repair please let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze

I have a profile refrigerator top bottome model 541039 there is water underneath the crispers in the refrigerator part what is the cause and how can I fix this


It sound like you have a frozen drain line. You have to go in from the front of the freezer and take the evaporator panel off to defrost the drain. Check to see if there is some food particles in the drain. When the drain line freezes up, the defrost water then spills into the refrigerator section through the air vents. This should get you back in shape.

How to completely clean the Crisper drawer


I don't know if you've already figured out how to remove the front panel on your refrigerator crisper bin, but here it is. Once the drawer is removed, pull back those clips on the top left & right of the front of the drawer.Just hold the side and pull back at the same time, then you can remove it. Once both side have been released you should be able to remove the clear plastic front and clean both pieces. I hope that is clear enough. Best of luck, unless of course you've already discovered the answer yourself.

Water leaking on floor. wateron top of crisper


Remove the food and the ice maker from the freezer ( if equiped ) . Remove the rear freezer panel . Using a hair dryer , start in the middle , below the coils , defrosting , until you see the drain hole . Use hot water to help defrost the hole . Once water starts going thru the hole , use a small hose inserted into the hole , and blow thru , to remove any unseen debris in the drain line . Use an ALUMINUM or COPPER solid wire , 14-16 guage , with the insulation completely off , and insert one end into the drain hole as far as possible without any force . Make a clip at the other end of the wire , and " clip " it over the glass tube (defrost heater) , above the hole . When refrig goes into defrost , the heat will transfer from the heater , to the wire , keeping the hole from freezing up again .

We are getting a small pool of water in the refrigerator, beneath the crispers. It pools toward the front, and we can't tell where it's coming from. Any suggestions?

Food in refrig crispers freezes. Top of freezer too warm.


Good day,
You are right about it being little or no air circulation. There is a fan motor in the freezer, which you can access by removing the rear panel of the freezer panel.
That's the good news. The bad news it is a DC variable speed motor controlled thru a thermistor and powered from the motherboard located in the back wall of the refrigerator.
You can remove and take the motor to an appliance parts house that deals in GE parts. If they determine the motor is bad, then you could effect a repair.
If not the machine is too complex, and some parts so expensive that repair is best left to a GE qualified pro.

Chemical smell in freezer and refrigerator


Have you tried cleaning wil Bon Ami ? Sometimes , we have to clean our reconditioned appliances that we sull to environmentalists ( detergent smells , fafric softner smells , etc , ) . Refrigerants ( freon ) have no odor , so it has to be the inside plastic which has the odor . Try Bon Ami and if that doesn't work , stuff 1 freezer shelf with crumpled up newspaper . The ink in newspaper , absorbes odors . This is the only way to remove fish odor in freezers that have quit cooling .

Water in bottom of fridge and in crisper drawers


the defrost drain in the freezer is clogged with ice.
empty the food from the freezer, and put through a defrost. you might have to help the fridge defrost with a hair dryer. you may also have to remove the rear panel (inside the freezer) or pending on the model to bottom panel of the freezer.. (usually held in by 1/4" hex screws.)
melt all the ice, and be sure that the drain is clear, and it should work.

Water draining under crisper bins & onto shelves. Try again


Your drain tube is stopped up. Take the panel off in the freezer section and chip away the ice in the pan below the coil. When you get to the drain hole pour hot water in it until it free flows. You will need a towel in the freezer to catch the excess water. Run some extra hot water through it to assure that you clean the drain out good.
